Today has seen the Phoenix Centre at Tedworth House host the mid-way Rowing Assessment for potential Invictus Games competitors.
Selection in July will be based on the talent and commitment shown by the potential competitors, so today was an opportunity to show off individual progress in the one minute and four minute distance tests that will be the times faced when competing in the Invictus Games.
Training sessions have been taking place every two weeks with the expectation that potential competitors train in-between times. Additionally assessors will soon begin tracking personal training to see how much is being done as the Games grow ever-closer!
One potential competitor today said how wonderful it was to be back in the gym and training after his injury and how much he is looking forward to the Games.
Help for Heroes Sports Recovery programme has been delivering grass roots and performance sport since 2008, and walking around the gym today, there is certainly an air of excitement and anticipation around exactly what lies in store over the next few months as potential competitors continue their training in earnest!
The Invictus Games will take place on the 10th – 14th September in London. Buy your tickets online now at: www.invictusgames.org
